ANN: Reminder - New Books in German History and German Studies (May 2017)

At the beginning of the month, we will publish our next bulletin on new books in German History and German Studies. If you would like to announce the  publication of your book, please submit the following information to Chris Fojtik by April 30: the author's name, the title of the book, the press, the month it appeared in print, and a link to the publisher/book's site (optional). We are somewhat flexible as to what constitutes a "new" book, but in general we want to publicize books published in the past twelve months.

Thank you,
